Social Inclusion Index

The Social Inclusion Index is an innovative way to measure how effectively countries are serving all their citizens — regardless of race, income level or creed. It was featured in the Issue 4, 2016 of the Americas Quarterly magazine and printed as a special edition in form of a booklet. 
For this project, I executed image research, typography, cover, layout and infographics design.
